Minister of National Integration Vinayagamurthi Muralitharan, speaking to Daily Mirror online, asserted that UNP leader Ranil Wickremasingha was not behind the split of the LTTE in 2004 although the UNP supported him after his defection. Speaking to Daily Mirror online Minister Muralitharan said “it is was my decision to defect from LTTE leader Vellupillai Prabakaran but the government at that time which was the UNP made me some offers after I left the LTTE outfit”
 

UNP leader Ranil Wickremasingha, in an interview with a Tamil television station in Europe, had refuted the suggestion that he was behind the split of Karuna Amman from the LTTE, who at the time was the eastern commander of the rebels.
 

Minister Muralitharan said he was welcomed by the UNP and the JVP after the split saying he was a good man but now he is being considered as a traitor and a murderer so that the Tamils will get angry and not vote for President Mahinda Rajapakse.
 

He added that JVP MP Samantha Waidyaratne, K.D. Lal Kantha and UNP parliamentarian Dayasiri Jayasekara are criticizing him saying that the President did not make the right decision by making him a Minister.
 

He also rejected allegations made by the opposition that he was involved in the killing of 500 police constables in the East and a group of Monks in Aranthalava. He said that everyone knows it was done by Tiger intelligence chief Pottu Amman.
 

“I joined the LTTE because my relations and my people we being killed by the army but later I realised that this war is pointless and we cannot get a separate land. I told Prabakaran but he never took notice of what I said. I even fell in trouble asking Prabakaran not to do that. He never listened to intellectuals. Thus I split to get democracy for the people,” Minister Muralitharan told Daily Mirror online. (Daily Mirror online)

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 10:11 AM

    Minister Karuna, in a weeks' time you will have to explain to the new govt as to what happened to those over 400 policewomen who were in your custody.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 10:16 AM

    Saturday, 23 January 2010 07:08 AM

    Dear Karuna, why it took such a long time to admit that UNP was responsible for your departure from LTTE.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 05:20 PM

    The folks who take time to read these articles and make their comments, are few. However, this isn't going to influence the 'naive' majority? Let us hope for the best! Let the good man, come out victorious. God bless SRI LANKA!

    SF also reject UNP hand in split !.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 12:13 PM

    This guy shouldn't be given ministerial portfolios. He has no intellect at all and this seems to be trend in MR's Camp. Its our duty to make sure we use our vote wisely and thats why MR and Co will never have mine. I only pray to ask god to take out the last bit of evil out of this country so we all can enjoy and have a better future.

    If Karuna admits that UNP was behind the split, it means that karuna admits that he was fooled by UNP and it will damage his image among Tamils therefore, he has no option but to reject any such claims by UNP

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 12:16 PM

    What a joke... he is calling him an intellectual? Any honor doctorate waiting for him?????? please CMB university... you have given one to Gota...now one to Karuna too plz....

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 06:22 PM

    You are answerable!

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 12:34 PM

    Karuna Amman you are being used . Don't u see this. You will be used and discarded when u are of no use. Move before it is too late and behave like a civilized human being with principles.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 08:22 AM

    Good Joke of the DAY

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 08:27 AM

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 08:48 AM

    This does not make sense, Govt. is telling the tamils Ranil split the LTTE but is telling the Sinhalese Ranil sold out to the LTTE. I think the govt. is lying to us.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 08:52 AM

    Very Cheap politics...!!!

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 09:22 AM

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 02:28 PM

    Yes, he is an intellectual compared to those around him like the Dr. Mervin, Wimal, Pillayan etc.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 09:25 AM

    karuna u useless fellow....

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 09:26 AM

    ....so so he says he is also an intellectual....what a beautiful joke.....

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 09:26 AM

    ISGA would have started the threshold, any how, I saw in newspapers after the arrival of S.A.Z.Moulana, the then Member of Parliament of the United National Party told that he brokered a deal and Ranil but he betrayed him to give the information on his where abouts to the 'tiger' command etc., What is the truth?
